The bold hop choices blend well together, with floral and tropical notes leading the charge with a hint of pine. The malt is similarly blended, though it comes across as a bit more one dimensional -- biscuit reigns supreme. Overall, a very satisfying beer that could lead to even greater things with a little more experimentation.
